and above that required deposit. and typically it has been the practice for the port to ask for major improvements to a leasehold area where the ten apartment is getting a longer term agreement than in this case.. >> there are two leases, l15, 690 and 58 months and up to 5, 12-month extensions. >> is that like ten years >> the other lease is, 31 months. >> okay. >> and it is also, about the board of supervisors right? and it has approved, and the bonus..., and i am not legislative drafted and so when we get the, you know the approval here, we will forward the legislation to the board. >> and i am just the word to the question, and i just put it out for the record and normally, when you need to grant an extension, we will not be precommitting to the rent, and in this case, i think that we just want to note that in order, i think that it is, a little bit of an incentive for them, in terms of when they do need to move, or they are not going to move, and they know what the rate is in advance, which is not normal port policy, and we will be usually at the end of the lease and take it up to

on the port staff is going to be working very closely with the forest city engineers to develop that infrastructure plan and coordinate with the other city departments like the san francisco public utilities commission and the department of public works. so, we are trying to get an interdisciplinary team from across the city to really focus on how we build this new neighborhood. and so that, and in closing. i mentioned the exclusive negotiating agreement earlier. and we do intend to come back to you with a proposal to amend that exclusive negotiating agreement, perhaps as early as the november meeting. and to address a few issues for this phase two, period of time. so that concludes my presentation and sarah and i are available to answer any questions. >> is there any public comment? >> commissioners is there any comment. >> i have a comment i am happy that you get your ppa letter from planning and i like how you are lining up your ducks there, and especially with the other two lots, and they are all going to come under the same environmental review and that is the real smart w
who was late in arriving because of the bart situation, there were two port tenants (inaudible) from the fleet and also, jennifer mats, head of the port water front project was there and i was hoping that she would be here today to add a few words about the trip. the bay area, council, led by mayor juan was also in beijing at the same time as our delegation and so we crossed paths many times and there was just, so many people from the bay area, that time you felt like you were at home, which was wonderful. >> and the trip had a packed schedule, which included a warriors game and i have to say that i was impress with td organization and they brought the inspire organization from china from the owners to the investors to the players and the wives and the cheer girls and the office and the flying dubs, and i was extremely impressed that they brought the entire organization to it be able to be a part of the trip. and (inaudible) participated in the forum at the university along with the mayor lee, and quan and i was happy to hear that when he spoke about the proposed project he not only
to what the port will be providing with the mayor's office of housing, these with the 20 percent including of the housing on site as well as that contemplated. >> yes, the term sheet contemplates that the development will be following all of the city's applicable, affordable housing rules. and the inclusionary number, i believe is 15 percent, where there is public ownership of a site. and the private market, rate is below that at 12 percent. sxh so we are going to be at that 15 percent mark. and there is also a jobs housing linkage fee requirement, for new, commercial, development, and to the presentation, and that is where the fee credits will go, and so we will be able to bring the fee credits either to the water front site or one of these adjacent sites in pier 70 to fulfill that obligation for the sea wall lot, 322-1. >> and then this is probably over my pay grade. but, in terms of some of the proposed affordable self-storage, i guess, and i may not understand, their use for it, but my understanding is that this will be a relatively short term. the lease at the site or what is the cont
association of harbor master and port captains had an awards banquet on october 30th, 3013. and at that awards banquet, the port of san francisco received an award for its efforts to bring the america's cup event to san francisco bay. and in particular, joe rilely was at that event and represented the port and the association of represents public and private marinas throughout the state and they were active in testimony and hearings leading up to the san francisco bay and a number of members at the event were very appreciative of our efforts but also say that the event was one of the key aspects of their career and their involvement in the event and they were thanking the port for bringing health and the event to the san francisco bay. >> the uss pamp anito, as well as it is not on the agenda, but as well as the sf jerimiah, are really two ships at piers 45. and they both, celebrated their 70th birthdays. and we had planned to present plaques to the communities to the representatives of the communities that the communities today and that they might be here and we will make
be allocated as follows, 1200 for port meter replacement, 2800 to replace damaged meters and 1 thousand to be used as a maintenance float, so there will be no expansion of new meters and if that's going to happen, it will be another go-around from the mta to describe how they will implement and with a lot of outreach to the public, so i know we have mr. risken here who may be able toed answer questions we might have, but i feel this resolution answers a lot of concerns people have and should be ready to go, thanks. >> is there a second to that motion? second by supervisor mar. do we have discussion on the amendments? okay, let's have some discussion, supervisor mar? >> thank you, president chiu, i wanted to thank supervisor avalos for working with the mta. i know when it first came to the budget committee, there wasn't that much detail in it, so i think the reduction from 10 thousand to 5 thousand of these new meters is important and designating where they're going to go is really important. i think public space though is a rare and valuable commodity in our city and how we allocate it

of what we thought we would need for the port meters, for maintenance, for repair and replacement, for kind of routine additions as we've done over the years and this was looking back on historical data and then a pretty sizable acknowledged sizable contingency. bringing this number down to 5 thousand will really leave us room primarily only for maintenance, repair and replacement and a reserve for the port and again, these are options to be exercised. if we were to get as we sometimes do very small scale requests for a couple of meters for a commercial establishment, i think we would have room within that 5 thousand going pursuant to the new process that we have outlined and had adopted by the board of directors to accommodate some very small new meter requests, but we certainly wouldn't be able to do anything on the scale of what we originally had proposed, for example, for the northeast mission proposal that we had since significantly changed, so the 5 thousand option would not give us the ability to do anything of that scale or even really a median scale, you know, very, very

of the waterfront up to the port ferry building here. and we've seen quite a lot of development along the ferry building. someone has told me that the bart 2 goes under here. is that right? >> yes. the ferry plaza which is the platform on the bayside of the ferry building is a public plaza, but it also has -- that's where the transbay (speaker not understood) in san francisco. in fact, last november when the voters approved tax increases to support the seismic retrofit of the bart system, the transbay 2 was one of their key focuses right now because it really is so fundamental to the whole system. so we're working with bart now to understand what their approach is for trying to do this and what kind of impacts it has on this area. >> this morning's ferry from tiburon. >> or lark spur. >> that's it, lark spur, the lark spur ferry coming up. and in the ferry building are the marvelous shops. this is food heaven in the ferry building. so the pilot boats go out and get stationed outside of golden gate, and meet incoming ships and transfer a pilot aboard who pilots the vessel into the bay. and these
